5 out of 5 stars


Mouse has lost her favorite bedtime book, and Frank the Dog is determined to help her find it. They ask Bella the Cat and they ask Owl to help them, but poor Mouse is very upset to have lost such a beloved book. How will Mouse ever get to sleep without her bedtime book?

This book is so adorable! The story is charming and sweet, and I loved the way the text draws the reader into the emotions of the story and the suspense of the mystery. The story has some excellent repetition in it, which is perfect for young readers. The pacing flows smoothly, and I loved the twist at the end.
The illustrations are bright colors on a black background, as Mouse searches for her book in the middle of the night. But the art doesn’t feel dark or oppressive, despite the dark background. Each scene is alive with energy and vivid designs. The art style is done in simple blocks of color, which are striking and pleasant. I think the illustrations are delightful!

Such a sweet and lovely book from start to finish, and perfect for bedtime!
